Pearls Before Swine

My best I gave
My everything it was yours
I left it all in your hands
Hoping that you would take it
So I would finally find value in it
But you left it
Like it was nothing
And for what?
A passerby
Someone who caught your eye
What does that say about me?
And all that I am?
Have you taken thought of that
Or consider it?
I suppose my heart before you
Was as pearls before swine after all
You could not appreciate me
Even though I gave my all
